Lawkence Bakkett, whoarrivi

says: "When Mr. Henry Irving

playing wifii him in a series of Shaks

Piiof. S. P. Langlev, Director of the
Pittsburgh University Observatorv.states
that the usefulness of the observatory
is threatened by tho smoke which in
Tadcs the sky from all quarters, and
.the increasing haze from moisture in
the atmosphere, which the smoke seems
to enhance. In five months there has
not been one day sufficiently clear for
delicate observations. Unless this state
of affairs is done away with Prof.
Langlev states that the days of the ob

The so-called Siberian plague is re
ported to have broken out in Kussia. If
tho affliction is the genuine disease of
that name, this is its first appearance
in Europe since 1816. It was very fatal
at Moscow in 1771 and 1772. The Brit
ish Islands were last visited in 1605; the
'great plague in London," like the fire
of the next year, is an historic land
mark. The plague of the fourteenth
century Uie celebrated "black death"
is said to have taken oft 25,000,000
Europeans. The disease is now be
lieved to originate only in Turkey and
the regions south and east of the Medit
erranean. It is essentially a malignant
contagious fever.
The situation of the
Guinea is very critical. Tho revolution
of the blacks, which had attained con
siderable importance some months back,
has not been put down. On tlo con
trary, letters from the province of
Bissao state that the only gunboat on
that station the Barreto has been
captured by the insurgents, the crew
escaping in the boats. The moral ef
fect of the abandonment of this vessel
and the delay in putting down this rising
are likely to prove disastrous for Portu
gal. The entire Portuguese press ad
mits this, and urges the Government to
adopt energetic measures without fur-
tlier delay.
By actual count, a Philadelphia paper
gays, there are 13,862 "Maiden Rocks"
in tho United States, exclusive of Idaho
and Washington Territories, which are
still to be heard from. These rocks
are widely distributed, but there are
so fewer than 650 in Michigan, S00 in
Wisconsin, 180 in Iowa, 187 in Illinois,
250 in Indiana, and 567. in Vermont
alone. A "Maiden Rock" is always
connected with tho unvarying legend
that a beautiful and gentle Indian maid,
daughter of a noted chief, leaped from
its apex into the yawning abyss below,
rather than to wed with a barbarian
brave, chosen by her stern parents, or
to show herself false to that other red
skin upon whom the affections of her
heart were set.
Great interest was taken at Wash
ington in the action of the Postmaster
General in the matter of letter-carriers
leave of absence. Although Judge
Gresham asked Congress for $100,000
to carry out the law; fce was only al
lowed one-half tliat sum. At first it
was thought that the consequence
would be that the carriers would
be restricted to seven days leave
instead, of the fifteen allowed by
.law. In reply to questions on the
subject, Judge Gresham said raeently
that he should certainly create no defi
ciency jfor the purpose, and tkat no part
of .the 4i,000,QOO which is provided for
the free-delivery service would be used
if tbe whole sum was required else
where. Judge Gresham added, how,
ver, that he- thought tbe full fifteen
days1 leave could be granted this year
. mad the smfeatiiataft. paid out of the $50.'

ing: "Our' 'foreign policy should be
an American policy in its- broadest

icy ot peace, of friendship, of commercial
enlargement. The name of American
which belongs to us in our National ca

one than the protection of tbe hamohjst

abroad, Into whatever land be may go apott

Mrv Blaine says: "I recegnUe. net with

diminishes when I see that the dements
